Pizza is a great dish to make with, and for, the family. The kids can join in with rolling out the dough and choosing their own toppings.  It’s not as difficult as it may seem, and with just a little effort you will get great results, and never go back to supermarket pizza again.

  • 500g ‘00’ flour
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • 7g sachet of dried instant yeast
  • tsp caster sugar
  • 30ml extra virgin olive oil
  • 325ml water
  • Passata

  • Chosen toppings

  1. Add the flour, salt, yeast & sugar to the mixer bowl and attach the dough hook

  2. Recipe rating: 5 of 5 Best dough recipe

    We've tried a number of dough recipes and this produces the tastiest pizza bases. We let it sit a bit longer than recommended and use slightly less water as find it gets very wet with full amount. We like thin bases so can easily make four large from the ingredients. Definitely recommend this recipe
